Very Nervous Springer Spaniel
I have a 14 month Springer Spaniel Male who has been neutered. The problem I have is when we are out walking he growls at every dog, barks at them and his hackles are all on end. Once I take him to meet the dog he lies on his back and is very submissive and then wants to play. When he is off the lead usually with his ball he is not interested at all in any dogs he is fixated with his ball. He is so confident in his home environment. He comes to work with me everday and has about two hours excercise a day he is very well socialised with people and plays with the other dogs at work of a lunchtime. I need to be able to teach myself to help him become less nervous and more confident in himself. This is my fourth Springer and have never encountered this problem so I need some help.
Many thanks JoanneReturn to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
